Carnivale Creators Defecting to Showtime?

Showtime is scouring HBO's talent pool for creatives. Daniel Knauf, creator of "Carnivale," and Tracey Torme, that show's consulting producer, are developing a Showtime comedy series that digs under the surface of the 1950s suburban idyll, in the tone of Todd Haynes' "Far From Heaven." "Carnivale" has failed to increase its viewership in its second season - is the announcement of the Knauf/Torme project a sign that a third season is not going to happen? No decision has been made by HBO yet.
